Looks like a late '30's - mid 40's Vagabond to me…nice!

But it could be several others too…check this out:

Atlas Mobile Home Museum

It's kinda hard to tell, there were several makers that had that basic "bread loaf" styling….it's all in the details, window styles, wheel wells, panel seams & rear end.

You should try to acquire it... Would definitely up your campsite cred!

I was thinking about seeing if they'd be interested in selling it. It's sitting at what appears to be an abandoned junkyard with lots of no trespassing signs. So it'll take some research to find an owner.

I never imagined it could be from the '30s. I was guessing the '50s. Pretty cool.

After some more research, I think it's a '47-'48 Westwood Coronodo.

I'm pretty sure it's the same as this:

1947 Westwood Coronado

'47 Coronado

Goodness, I wonder if it has all the lovely veneer intact inside?
What a find, time to do some digging, and find the owner of that "wreck" of a trailer.

Looking at the quality of the restoration, that seems reasonable, given what a new trailer would cost.

Beautiful.

The old ones weighed less, so maybe 750# or so. On the plus side, it should have enough tongue weight to be pretty stable when towing.
